South African Airways, headquartered in Guateng, is a national flag carrier and largest airline in South Africa. The airline has previously recruited both unqualified (ab-initio) and qualified pilots.
For more information, please visit www.flysaa.com.
All pilot aptitude tests aim to assess the same key core skills required to complete pilot training successfully and/or operate an aircraft competently. The assessment of skills such as multi-tasking, spatial awareness, memory capacity, hand-to-eye coordination and mental arithmetic cannot necessarily be assessed within one test and therefore a pilot aptitude test is commonly separated in to a collection of tests, organised in to a battery and completed by the candidate in one sitting. The candidate is commonly provided with two attempts in which to complete this battery, enabling assessors to analyse improvement shown by the candidate.
As of 2016, we are currently unaware of the use of computerised pilot aptitude tests for the assessment of qualified and unqualified (ab-initio) pilots in South African Airways.
Previously however, the airline has conducted computerised pilot aptitude tests which candidates were required to complete successfully. It is not known whether South African Airways requires qualified pilots to undergo testing on technical or ATPL subjects. In any instance, PilotAptitudeTest.com provides a database of ATPL questions at additional cost to subscribers which South African Airways candidates may find beneficial.
We recommend that given the changeable nature of recruitment and subsequent assessment strategies used by assessors, you should prepare for a pilot aptitude test in the event that one is included within your assessment.
It should be noted that since our inception in 2012, South African Airways candidates have gained great benefit from the online preparation software provided by PilotAptitudeTest.com.

Mimicking tasks within a jet aircraft, Aspects assesses and enhances candidate ability in spatial awareness by incorporating aural statements and visual imagery.
Encompassing multiple tasks in to one activity, MultiTasker assesses and enhances candidate ability in multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention
Control assesses and enhances candidate ability in hand-to-eye coordination and selective attention using multiple control axes and visual cues.
Incorporating control and acknowledgment of cues, Command assesses and enhances multi-tasking, selective attention and hand-to-eye coordination skills.
Tracking assesses and enhances candidate multi-tasking and hand-to-eye coordination skills with the use of two control axes controlled by opposing inputs.
Tasking the candidate with controlling multiple intermittently changing datums, Guidance assesses and enhances selective attention and hand-to-eye coordination skills.
Perspectives assesses and enhances spatial awareness, tasking the candidate with matching sets of multicoloured cylinders orientated in to different perspectives.
Switch establishes an understanding of memory capacity and selective attention skills, tasking the candidate with efficiently acknowledging change.
Our mathematics database, organised in to easy, medium and hard difficulties, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude tests.
Visual Reasoning 4
Visual Reasoning 4 presents four images each containing numerous scrambled lines and tasks the candidate with identifying which image hides a shape within.
Bearings assesses user understanding of their position in physical space, known as spatial awareness, using common flight instruments.
This highly accurate test simultaneously assesses and enhances multi-tasking, hand-to-eye coordination and memory capacity skills.
Orientation assesses spatial awareness and selective attention skills, by tasking candidates with identifying friend or foe aircraft.
Our verbal reasoning content, organised by excerpt, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude tests.
Visual Reasoning 2
One of many visual reasoning puzzles provided to candidates, Visual Reasoning 2 establishes the understanding of spatial awareness using 2D objects.
Visual Reasoning 3
One of many visual reasoning puzzles provided to candidates, Visual Reasoning 3 establishes the understanding of spatial awareness using 3D objects.
Our science database, organised in to easy, medium and hard difficulties, accurately mimics the questions posed in a large majority of pilot aptitude tests.
Memory assesses selective attention and memory capacity skills, tasking the candidate with efficiently memorising and inputting four sets of data repeatedly.
A challenging activity, Adjust assesses multi-tasking, spatial awareness, hand-to-eye coordination, selective attention and mental mathematic skills.
